Laminar Air Flow
Use of a laminar air flow is to maintain a clean working environment by extracting any toxic contaminated particles arising from lab experimentation. Every medical and research laboratory requires a clean working area so as to perform lab work. The Laminar Air Flow Cabinets enable particle-free working environment by propelling air through a filtration system and exhausting it across a work surface in a laminar or uni-directional air stream. The Laminar Air Flow Cabinets provide an ambient clean air environment as per the laboratory requirements. The making of laminar air flow cabinets generally involves stainless steel which is welded using special welding techniques leaving no gaps or joints and thereby preventing the penetration of bacteriological contamination in the working area. The reason for laminar air flow cabinets being called as clean benches is because the air for the working area is thoroughly cleaned by ionization during the filtration process. .

The working of laminar air flow can be described as the flow of filtered air inside the cabinet with a steady and uniform velocity.
Laminar Air Flow Cabinets work by using the in-flow laminar air drawn through HEPA (High-efficiency particulate arrestance) filters designed to create a contamination free working environment.
The incorporated micro controller unit controls the ON/OFF switching for blower operation, UV germicidal light, fluorescent light, and mains. A high quality air velocity sensor helps in sensing the actual air flow in FPM. Alarm in the microprocessor controller warns if any un desired changes occur in the air velocity from normal flowing velocities.
Types of Laminar Flow Cabinets
Laminar Flow Cabinets can be produced as both horizontal and vertical cabinets. There are many different types of cabinets with a variety of airflow design patterns for different purposes. The laminar air flow cabinets are also distinguished on the basis of materiel used for construction i.e Wood, MS (Mild Steel), SS (Stainless Steel). A few types of designs are as mentioned below:
• Horizontal Laminar Flow Cabinets.
• Vertical Laminar Flow Cabinets.
• Laminar Flow Benches and Booths.
• Laminar Flow Cabinets and Hoods.
Horizontal Laminar Flow Cabinets
The direction of air flow in Horizontal Laminar Flow Cabinets comes from above but then changes direction and is processed across the work in a horizontal direction.
Vertical Laminar Flow Cabinets
In a Vertical Laminar Flow Cabinets the air is directed vertically downwards onto the working area. The air can leave the working area via holes in the base. Vertical flow cabinets are quite safer in comparison to the Horizontal Table as the direction of air is from top to bottom So whatever exhaust is being generated gets washed away in the opposite direction of operation.
